(1) Despite the amendment of regulation 30 of CAR on 1 March 2014, a certificate of approval that covers the design of an aircraft, aircraft component or aircraft material and was in force under that regulation immediately before that date:
(a) continues in force on and after that date according to its terms; and
(b) may be varied, suspended or revoked under regulation 269 of CAR as if regulation 30 of CAR had not been amended.
(2) However, the certificate of approval ceases to have effect, to the extent that it covers the design of an aircraft, aircraft component or aircraft material, at the earliest of the following times:
(a) if the certificate of approval specifies a day on which it expires, or a period for which it is to remain in force--the end of that day or period;
(b) the end of 28 February 2017;
(c) if it is revoked under regulation 269 of CAR--when it is revoked.
(a) before 1 March 2014, an application was made, under regulation 30 of CAR, for a certificate of approval that covers the design of an aircraft, aircraft component or aircraft material; and
(b) the application was in accordance with that regulation as in force at the time the application was made; and
(c) the application was not finally determined by CASA before that date;
Regulation 30 of CAR has effect, on and after that date, in relation to the application as if regulation 30 of CAR had not been amended.
(4) If a certificate of approval is granted under regulation 30 of CAR, as in effect under subregulation (3), subregulations (1) and (2) apply to the certificate of approval as if the certificate had been issued under regulation 30 of CAR immediately before 1 March 2014.
